Late-breaking Abstract

Abstract submission has been closed on July 31, however, we assume there are some more researchers with latest accomplishments. To make the meeting more meaningful, we would like to call for “Late-breaking Abstracts” from those who could not make it in time for the former deadline.
We look forward to receiving your abstracts!

Late-breaking Abstract Submission Period :

September 1 (Fri) - 29 (Fri), JST 17:00 2023 Closed

*Abstract submission must be completed by 17:00 JST on September 29.
Please note that after 17:00, you cannot submit or edit your abstract even if you are still logged in the system.
Please submit your abstract well in advance.

  • ・Presentation style for late-breaking abstracts is poster presentation only. Late-breaking abstracts will not be accepted for oral presentations at open-call symposia or at science pitch (short talk).
  • All free papers are to be presented on-site. Online presentation will not be accepted.
  • Multiple abstracts can be submitted only if they are on different research topics.Those who submitted abstracts by July 31 can also submit abstracts for late-breaking abstracts.
  • Posters of late-breaking abstracts will be placed in the same area as the posters of related topics which were submitted by July 31.
    Posters submitted by the same presenter will be numbered consecutively on the same presentation date.

Guidelines relating to presentation of research results

An important objective of the conference is to engage in lively debate and to exchange information by sharing the latest research results, including those that have not yet been published. In order to achieve this objective, we ask you to follow the guidelines set out below with respect to research presentations.

  1. The following behavior, which could seriously damage mutual trust among participants, is prohibited.
    Capture/save (including screen capture), photographic, video or sound recording of raw data presented or displayed at the verbal presentation venue or the poster venue (including streaming) without the permission of the presenter.
    Disclosure of the above research data to a third party via SNS or similar media without the permission of the presenter.
  2. When making presentations, as far as possible, there should be no concealing of molecule names, methodologies, theoretical concepts or ideas that are central to the research.
  3. Presenters are to take responsibility for the handling of information relating to patent applications and the like.
  4. Presenters are required to disclose any conflict of interest in this meeting.
